Suede Announce New LP 'The Blue Hour', Watch A trailer

Suede have announced the release of their eighth studio album titled ‘The Blue Hour’.

The follow -up to 2016's Night Thoughts, was produced and mixed by Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery Studios in London, and will be out on the 21st September. It shares the same line-up as 1996’s Coming Up – vocals by Brett Anderson, guitars by Richard Oakes, bass by Mat Osman, drums by Simon Gilbert, synthesizers and piano by Neil Codling. Pre-order your copy here.

The album is the final part of the triptych of albums recorded by the band since they reformed and released 2013’s Bloodsports, and sees the band continue to explore new ground sonically.  It features a choir and spoken word, as well as string arrangements from Craig Armstrong and the band’s own Neil Codling.

Suede explain: "'The Blue Hour' is the time of day when the light is fading and night is closing in. The songs hint at a narrative but never quite reveal it and never quite explain. But as with any Suede album, it’s always about the songwriting. The band, the passion and the noise: The Blue Hour."
